Welcome to Metzer Farms. We are a family-owned farm and hatchery that has been in business since 1972. We control all aspects of nutrition, breeding, selection, incubation, and hatching to ensure you the highest quality of day-old birds.
We specialize in waterfowl, hatching 19 breeds of ducks (Pekin, Jumbo Pekin, Mallard, Rouen, Khaki Campbell, Blue Swedish, Black Swedish, Buff, Cayuga, Welsh Harlequin, White Crested, Fawn & White Runner, Black Runner, Blue Runner, Chocolate Runner, Saxony, Silver Appleyard, Golden 300 Hybrid, and White Layer) and 16 breeds of geese (Embden, Toulouse, Buff Toulouse, White Chinese, Brown Chinese, Pilgrim, Buff, Tufted Buff, African, Super African, French Toulouse, Large Dewlap Toulouse, Sebastopol, Roman Tufted, Classic Roman, Tufted Toulouse). We also hatch French Pearl Guineas and Ringneck Pheasants,
as well as three strains of meat chickens (Cornish Cross, Rolin S, and Big Sur).
It is easy for you to enjoy the thrill of raising a baby duckling or gosling into adulthood. Our minimum order quantity is two ducklings or goslings so you do not have to raise more birds than you want. We also hatch ducks year round. Whereas most hatcheries stop hatching in June or July, we hatch Pekin and Mallard year round and our other breeds of ducks from February through early December. The season for the geese, guineas, and pheasants is in the spring and early summer. Our chickens are hatched year round for those of you wanting to grow chickens commercially for your local restaurants or farmers' markets.
I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
I'm beyond happy with my order of Cayugas I received yesterday. I was a bit worried since I was on the wait list since June for these babies but after getting them home, they are lively & immediately took to drinking/eating. Thanks so much for the time and effort put into your ducks that's behind scenes and goes unnoticed. I'm very impressed with this order and will order again in the Spring!
You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Ducks have arrived! Safe and sound. Thank you Ashley for reassuring me via our phone conversation. It is very warm here and I was frantic. Good job everyone!! They are wonderful!
The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
I want to thank your farm for sending me all healthy little ducklings. I am so excited. After a few hours they were running around in the brooder. My whole family is enjoying them and they think this is a great experience for everyone.
Last year we ordered 10 hatchable Pekin duck eggs. We received 15, and hatched 10! It was a great experience for my boys. This year during the sheltering, we are considering the prospects of hatching Mallard duck eggs. Thank you for your attention to detail and for your kindness.
Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
My ducklings arrived this morning and they are all healthy and happy! I was very happy with the little nest in the box, you guys obviously know what you're doing. We'll definitely order from you guys again! Thank you!
Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Thank you for being so kind and making available every thing we need! The books I purchased from your company are amazing! I'm loving our new adventure raising ducks and chickens!
My Grandson's ducklings arrived happy, healthy and warm, thanks to the heat pack. Can't wait until he is able to show them at the fair!
From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!
